    Condition Report:

    Wearable -  A number of the rhinestones have begun to darken with age. However, the piece still sparkles. It is collectable and a great design.

    The Details...

    This dress clip is constructed from Rhodium Plated metal. It features a fan design set with colourless round and baguette cut paste stones of varying sizes. The clip is signed. The 'KTF' mark is stamped on the back of the clip. The dress clip measures 4cm x 2.5cm.  

    A Short History...

    This dress clip is stamped 'KTF' which stands for Krussman, Trifari and Fishel. Leo Krussman, Gustavo Trifari and Carl Fishel ran the Trifari company together from 1925 and jewellery was stamped with their names until the mid 1930s. Examples of Trifari jewellery featuring the KTF stamp are very rare and highly collectable. 

    Wear it With...

    This dress clip is perfect for evening wear or a special occasion. It would look beautiful with a little black dress, but equally chic with a bridal gown. Alternatively, wear it in the day - pinned to the top of a buttoned up crisp white shirt.

    All that Glitters

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
